Happy Thanksgiving, Raptors! I hope this will be a time for you to reflect on the past and think about the positive things that have inspired you and kept you going to be where you are now! We’re about 3 weeks away from finals week, and I hope we keep our diligence and strive to finish strong. In honor of Thanksgiving Day, I wrote a little poem and I hope it makes you think about things you’re thankful for.
Thankful for the things that still shine
Thankful for things that rusted over time,
Thankful for the good
As well as the bad,
Thankful for memories that still make me smile.
In every season there is a lesson
First I learned to crawl,
Then I learned how to fly
I’m thankful for rainbow after the rain,
And for wisdom that I can gain.
Thankful for the car I drive
I’m thankful for chicken and fries,
I’m thankful that I have a warm bed for a cold winter night
I’m thankful that I have a place I call Home,
And thoughts and ideas I call my own.
I’m thankful that this heart has kindness to give
I’m thankful for every second that’s given to me,
I’m thankful for second chances and open doors
And most importantly,
I’m thankful for people that make life worthwhile.
